ISLAMABAD Expressing dissatisfaction over the Rawalpindi police report, the Supreme Court on Wednesday directed Advocate General Punjab to take up the matter with higher authorities of the province for constituting an independent team to conduct the inquiry pertaining to drag race in a fair and free manner by January 3. A three-member bench comprising Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhary, Justice Ghulam Rabbani and Justice Khali-ur-Rehman Ramday was hearing a sou moto of the drag race, in which five persons were killed on December 5, 2010. The car race was arranged to promote motor sports in the country. During the car race, one car had lost its control and crashed into spectators after hitting the safety railing and smashing into a footpath. The car was running at a speed of 160 kilometres per hour. Five persons, including 11-years-old boy Asfand Yar were killed. During the proceedings, the Chief Justice said, We painfully note that the police officers were required to come up with the fact but they were trying to conceal it from the court. He remarked that the IGP level police officer does not know anything, as he has not collected any evidence and documents pertaining to the case so far, adding till now RPO and other police officers of the city should have been suspended. Advocate General Punjab Khawaja Harris, Regional Police Officer, Rawalpindi, Mukhtar Gondal, DCO Imdadullah Wasal and CPO Fakkar Sultan appeared before the court on Wednesday, while senior advocate of SC Khalid Anwar assisted the court in the case. The Chief Justice reprimanding the Regional Police Officer, Rawalpindi, Mukhtar Gondal, said that the Prime Minister by dismissing two ministers has enhanced the respect of this Court. Its worth mentioning here that three days ago during the proceedings of irregularities in the Haj arrangements case, the CJP had directed Sardar Latif Khosa, counsel for Hamid Saeed Kazmi, ex-minister for Religious Affairs, to talk to the Prime Minister that on account of involvement of the high profile personalities in the case, it would be an uphill task for the Director General, FIA and his team to conduct investigation in a transparent manner, therefore, we desire that let all these facts be brought into the notice of the Prime Minister of Pakistan, who may personally look into the matter and ensure that the investigation is conducted without influence of any of the key persons against whom the allegations of corruption and corrupt practices have been levelled. The government on December 14 had dismissed Kazmi and Azam Swati, Minister for Science and Technology. The Chief Justice also said that civil servants are coming out with the facts and telling the court truth, but the police conceal the fact. Khalid Anwar, amicus curiae, earlier pointed out different aspects of the incident that took place before December 5, the date when the race was held. He said that prima facie four kinds of groups were involved in the incident. First the organisers, second police officers that include those who gave permission, those who were present there, third is the driver, and fourth are the spectators. Khalid said that the race was advertised in print media and three companies - PTCL, PSO and DGM Securities had sponsored it. Ticket for seeing the race was Rs 200. He said that the idea of holding the car race was not sports, but to make money. The RPO, Rawalpindi, informed that 3,000 tickets were sold and 34 cars took part in the race, adding Rs1500 were charged from per participant. He said that a new team headed DIG and comprising three SPs has been constituted to investigate the case. He told that pre-arrest bail of the main accused has been extended upto December 18. The Chief Justice asked the Chief Justice of Lahore High Court to direct the District and Sessions Judge of Rawalpindi to decide the matter soon. Justice Ramday observed that similar kind of race was also held in April this year. He said that the city police was responsible as the event was held right under their nose. Khawaja Haris Advocate General, Punjab, told the court that despite his reservation a new team was constituted, adding he would take up matter with the Chief Minister to shift all the police officers from Rawalpindi and constitute a team, which could probe into the matter impartially. He said the CPO who himself was alleged in the permission of this event, should have declined.
